Windows Environment Variables in Vim

All the Windows environment variables are read by Vim and they are available in Vim as Vim environment variables. Vim environment variables begin with the character $. Hence, the Windows environment variable name is prefixed with the $ character when it becomes a Vim environment variable.

For example, the Windows environment variable %USERPROFILE% will be available as $USERPROFILE inside Vim.
